Plant Health Care

Pests and Disease

We are able to identify and treat diseases that affect our garden plants and trees. We are able to offer a range of treatment options while being mindful of biologically sensitive or aquatic environments.

It is not always possible or practical to treat problems that affect our vegetation. In such cases we work with you to restrict the damage and offset the loss with more resistant selections. In many cases we plant a replacement tree before it is nessessary to remove an ailing tree to allow time for the new tree to establish itself and therefore minimise the impact of the loss when the time comes to remove a terminal tree.

 

 

Soil Health

We understand the relationship between biologically active and healthy soil and thriving vegetation. The underlying cause of many health problems that affect our vegetation is due to biological imbalances within the soil. Healthy soil exists like a large living organism made up of fungi, bacteria and invertebrates working in symbiosis with plant roots breaking down and exchanging minerals and organic matter.

We evaluate your soil and work to improve conditions to create easy to manage and sustainable environment.

 

Elm Leaf Beetle

We have more than 15 years experience in controlling Elm Leaf Beetle for Local Government, Schools and Domestic Clients. We use various methods of treatment depending on access to soil area, proximity to waterways and other environmental considerations. Our treatments offer up to 3 years protection for your tree.

 

 

Sooty Mould

Sooty mould is an unsighly black layer that covers the leaf surface and surfaces close to the host tree ie. garden furniture and vehicles.

By treating the cause of black sooty mould, we are able to successfully eliminate the re emergence of sooty mould that affects many of our trees and the area surrounding them. Our treatments are long lasting.
